Camping Holidays In Spain On The Costa Brava & Costa Dorada

Unwinding on the warm sand of a Mediterranean beach, wandering through whitewashed, sleepy fishing villages such as Cadaqués, made famous by Pablo Picasso and Salvador Dalí, strolling through medieval fortress towns such as Pals and Ullastret.

Nestled on a steep hillside, Camping Cala Gogo enjoys spectacular views of pine forest-covered hills on one side, and the clear waters of the Mediterranean on the other. Click Here For More Information From Eurocamp

By common consent, Camping Cala Gogo enjoys the highest reputation amongst the larger camping holiday parks of the Costa Brava. As well as offering direct access to the location’s own private beach for your use and the sea, Camping Cala Gogo is packed with activities including: basketball, football, tennis and a play area. There’s a wonderful pool complex with two adult pools and a splash pool. In the evenings from the end of June, there’s also a disco at the beach bar.

If a trip to Barcelona appeals, there is a bus stop directly outside the campsite for the two hour bus journey there.

Tamarit Park has a large, tropical swimming pool surrounded by sunbathing lawns. A short walk will also get you down to a sandy Mediterranean beach, where kayaks and water scooters can be hired. The park has its own entertainment team with live shows and music in the amphitheatre during July and August.

Tamarit Park has it’s own beach restaurant with views to enjoy of both the Mediterranean and Tamarit Castle, a poolside restaurant and a bar. It also has a bakery, a minimarket and pizzeria so you should find there is plenty of choice both for dining and refreshments. If you wish to explore further afield, Barcelona is about an hour’s drive to the north.

Practical Information

There are three main ways to get to the Costa Brava and Costa Dorada. Firstly by air to nearby airports such as Gerona, Barcelona or Reus which can be booked either with or separately from your holiday operator. Secondly, you could use the ferry route to Bilbao and then head across by road, depending on the traffic this could easily still involve a five hour drive. Thirdly you could head down from the Channel coast if you’ve got the time. If you are having a 2 or 3 week holiday or longer, that can be done without being too onerous with other stops as part of your holiday, either by adding extra campsites to stay at or one or two hotel stops. Indeed that is an excellent way to get further afield at your own pace as I myself have done on several trips as far as Spain, Italy and even Portugal.

Here’s a list of some of the main companies offering Camping Holidays in Spain on the Costa Brava and Costa Dorada, with links:

Al Fresco Holidays
Brittany Ferries Chalet Camping In Spain
Canvas Holidays
Eurocamp
Hoseasons
KelAir

It is impossible to say which of the operators will have the most competitive offer at a particular time. That will depend on a number of factors including loyalty bonuses you may already have accrued from previous bookings and time related special offers available at a particular time. Please note that KelAir are based in Ireland and that with Hoseasons you will be booking privately owned accommodation where you will need to liaise with the accommodation’s owner during your stay.
